My specs:

HP Pavillon HPE H8-1022
Pegatron IPISB-CH2 motherboard
Intel Core i7-2600CPU @3.4 ghz
Windows 7 64-bit
EVGA Geforce GTX 760
OCZ Fatal1ty 750W
10G RAM

So recently I bought this new GTX 760 from EVGA and a new PSU (OCZ fatal1ty 750W) to meet the requirements (my old PSU was a 460 Watt. It wouldn't be able to run the card). I've had this computer since 2011 and never had a single problem with it. Upon installing the new hardware, when starting the machine, the HP start menu screen appears, followed by a beeping sound every 10-15 seconds and no response from the keyboard.

Obviously the problem must have been with the new hardware, but no. Restoring the old ATI Radeon HD 6770 (the one that came with my computer unit when I bought it) while keeping the new PSU, my system boots and works just fine. All games and everything else works with no hassle.

To test out the GTX 760, I installed it on another computer we have and it booted up and worked perfectly. So there hardly seems to be any issue with it either..!

I tried updating my BIOS, I tried the whole bunch of different connectors that came with my modular PSU to see if that might do the trick, with and without the extensions included with the graphics card. The GPU is a 6-pin + 8-pin one, and both were always connected. After around 8-9 tries, where I checked each time to see if the connectors and the card were connected and fitted like they should, I ran out of options.

Does the problem lie with the motherboard itself (an IPISB-CH2 by Pegatron), who might not be compatible with the GTX 760 or with Nvidia at all, or is it something between my PSU and Graphics card?

Thank you

Thank you all


I'm sure you've already done this, but no harm in mentioning it. The 6770 required only one pcie
connector, and the 760 requires two. Are you using two connectors? Probabbly yes, but thot
I'd mention it anyway. If you are using both, it's possible one of them(pcie connector) is bad,
as your 6770 works fine.

So, try them independently with the 6770. If they are both good, then it is probably the GPU itself.

Thank you for the answer! And yes, I already have done that hehe. Though I don't think the problem lies within one of the connectors since I have four of them in total with also some very oddly shaped one, all from from my PSU. I have tried with each and every of them, the problem still occurs.

Also, since I have tried the GTX 760 on another computer and it booted and worked just fine, I don't think the problem lies within it as well..

Try to reset the cmos either by taking out the battery on the motherboard or using the jumper method then installing the card. Make sure while doing this to take out the power to avoid any potential damage.

I've read about such things here and there, but never actually have done something of the like. What is cmos and how do I find the battery on the motherboard? What is the Jumper method also?

The battery is the silver round thing onnthe motherboard try to look for it. The jumper method is here : youtube.com/watch?v=-9RnIj-EcdQ
